Week 24 #17 Gate


I probably took a couple of dozen shots of various gates and doors on our River Cruise.  The uniqueness of each one caused my imagination to swirl thinking about who the people were who touched and walked through them over the centuries.  Were they a simple maid, a young child, a woman in high society, a man of the cloth, a beggar,  the possibilities are endless.  While visiting Wertheim, Germany one afternoon, this small carved gate really caught my attention.  It has to be one of the smallest and most unique gates I have ever seen.  It wasn’t even as wide as me! Again, my imagination went wild and I could not stop thinking or talking about this gate.  I knew right away it would be my choice for this theme.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  9. I love your story behind the scenes, and the phrase that your “imagination swirled” which is very appropriate. It is a unique gate and seems to have a story behind it!

    • No I didn’t research it. The space is so small, it looks like it leads to an alley with lots of pipes and electrical poles, so perhaps its only used by service people. I just love the carved top.


  11. Stay away from my gate. It must be to let the kids out. Very nice capture, and very intriguing. Gary
